Richmond Company Launches Temperature Screening Sensors Amid COVID-19

From Richmond News

A Richmond company is prioritizing the use of its temperature sensors –used also in manufacturing production lines to identify overheating - to detect symptoms of COVID-19.

FLIR Systems said their A400/A700 Thermal Smart Sensor and Thermal Image Streaming cameras can be used to screen for elevated temperatures in skin as well as to monitor equipment and production lines.

Jim Cannon, CEO of FLIR, said the company’s thermal imaging has allowed professionals to improve their facilities as well as their safety on the job.

“As the world works together to face the global COVID-19 pandemic, given the need for this technology, FLIR will prioritize initial deliveries of this new A-series camera to professionals using it in elevated skin temperature screening as an adjunct to other elevated body temperature screening tools to help to fight the spread of the virus.”

Two different camera systems were designed for different needs, according to the company.

The Thermal Smart Sensor system is used for measuring elevated skin temperatures, while the Image Streaming system is used in manufacturing, for example, to identify potential failures that could shut down a production line and to improve quality assurance.

FLIR is currently testing automated screening software for elevated skin temperature with its certified thermal cameras, already certified by the U.S. Food and Drug Administration, to increase the speed and accuracy of existing screening procedures.

Automated Temperature Screening is effortless and creates a safe trusted environment that eases the tension, fear, and anxiety people often feel after a pandemic.
